    Respected Saadh Sangat Ji,

    There has been some confusion on this term SAAS GIRAAS under another thread, just to clarify:

    Saas- breath
    Giraas- Morsel of food

    so 'saas giraas' refers to WITH EVERY BREATH AND EVERY MORSEL OF FOOD.

    Respected Surinder Kaur ji,

    on the same note would you accept

    Mankind = Man who is very Kind.

    'saas giraas' =EVERY BREATH AND EVERY MORSEL OF FOOD. will only choke one to death.

    But then again who am I to correct you.

    I bid you Wahe Guru ji Ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru ji ki Fateh.

    Dear and Righteous Ekmusafir Ji,

    it seems like you just want to prove me wrong- whichever way- now you dont have any other thing to say- so you came up with this joke.

    anyways- all is eccepted on this end.

    thanks very much endlessly.

    me neech heard and discussed it with Prof. Darshan Singh Ji- he agrees with these meanings.

    I heard Sant Singh Maskeen ji doing the same translations.

    Respected Bhai VEER SINGH JI- writes the same.

    very humbly asking for everybody's forgiveness

    Ekmusafir ji

    We can agree that I am not a Gurmukhi scholar. So what does Saas Giraas mean then? More than one Dandami has translated it in accord with Surinder ji.

    Man + kind has a different meaning.

    Man - humans + Kind - species, type or category = Belonging to the category of humans

    You are being funny.

    Ekmusafir ajnabi Ji,


    So you saying that all those who DO SIMRAN 24/7 are all choked to death.Yes, I agree there, their Iness is choked to death, BUT they are ABINAASI, Nirankaar Himself.
